I'm rereading the Chronicles now as part of Marya's Narnia Readalong:
At the end of Prince Caspian there is the scene where Aslan allows those Telmarines who are willing to go back to the South Pacific island from where they originally came. Seems the Telmarines are descended from some castaways who found a cave on that island that was one of the "chinks and chasms" between the world of man and Aslan's world. I immediately thought of Lost and the Island when I read this.
I didn't catch that the British Charlotte's last name was Staples! Hmmmm....

"Conversational, embracing, and casually erudite, Laura Miller's superb long essay is the kind that comes along too rarely, a foray into the garden of one book that opens to the whole world of reading, becoming in the process a subtle reader's memoir, and manifesto."
-- Jonathan Lethem
